Common Organizational Strategies
Growth-Based Strategies can generally be grouped into:
- Concentration - Focusing on a single line of business.
- Diversification - Diversification is when companies participate in numerous lines of business or numerous unrelated products/services at the same time. Highly-diversified companies will have numerous business lines. A less-diversified company will have fewer or only one business line.
- Integration - Combining with suppliers, buyers, or competitors for competitive advantage.
- Cooperation - Working with competitors rather than competing.
- Internationalization - Going outside of the countries borders in search of new markets.
Stability Strategies can be based upon:
- No Change - Stay the operational course.
- Profit-earning - Maximize profits at a given market share.
